Alright lets have a talk here on guns.
What do you like to use the most when going hunting and what brand of ammo do you like to use when hunting and range visits also what gun cleaning materials do you like to use the most?
I also like to hunt out in winter when it snows so I don't have to put up with ticks or fleas and when it comes to longer stays out in the woods I use candles and a makeshift candle lamps because I don't want to use battery powered one.
So lets have a discussion
My 25-06 with my handloads. 110 grain Nosler Accubonds going 3000+ FPS, fuck year.
It's meat that I got from a store in Arkansas where I live at and the meat taste very good.
You should try some when you see it in store and it goes nice with white truffle oil and paprika.
How much meat did you got out of it from that exit wound?
I haven't hunted deer since 2009 and pheasant since I stopped guiding in 2008. I shot target rifle and reloaded heavily until I joined the Army in 2010 and haven't fired a sporting rifle since being discharged 2012. If my dog is feeling up to it, we go and hunt rabbits, but she is old and tired.
I shoot trap and skeet, usually with Federal 7.5 shot, 3 dram equivalent, but anything that is 1200fps and not shit is fine. I sometimes use 9 shot for skeet if I care more than normal.
Cleaning depends on the gun, but usually Hoppes or Birchwood Casey junk and a good cleaning kit I put together over the years.
Benelli Nova 12 gauge 28" barrel in Max-4.
Whatever is cheapest at Academy. (Have friends that buy black cloud and other expensive stuff and I always drop more birds).
CLP and a bore snake. If it gets really gunky I'll drop the trigger group and give it a bath in dish soap then lube it up and pop it back in.
Only had one failure to eject and that was with Winchester 3.5inch BB on a snow goose hunt.
